Kylian Mbappe reportedly agrees a five-year contract with Real Madrid

Reports indicate that Kylian Mbappe has agreed to join Real Madrid once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires.

Last week, the 25-year-old Kylian Mbappe informed PSG’s management of his decision to depart the club, opting not to extend his contract for another year, which means his current deal concludes this summer.

Numerous speculations have circulated regarding Mbappe’s next destination as a free agent, with Premier League clubs such as Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal among those rumored.

Real Madrid has long been considered the frontrunner for Mbappe’s signature, and reports from BBC Sport and Marca suggest that the French star has indeed reached an agreement with the club.

It’s reported that Mbappe will sign a five-year contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, earning €15m annually and receiving a substantial €150m signing bonus spread over five years.

Despite the loss of their star player, PSG will not suffer financially. Mbappe has agreed to reimburse approximately €80m to the club by allowing his contract to expire. Additionally, PSG stands to save €200m by not retaining Mbappe on their roster next season.

PSG has already identified potential replacements for the French superstar. The club is interested in players like Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, SSC Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, and RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko. Among these options, Sesko appears to be the most cost-effective, given his €50m release clause set to activate this summer.

Proposed Salary for Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid

When Mbappe signed his extension with PSG in 2022, he reportedly collected an £86m signing-on bonus, which would have been the largest payment ever made to a footballer in the sport’s history. Madrid has now surpassed that sum with a bonus of £128m, which is set to be divided across a five-year contract (as reported by BBC).

Mbappe’s proposed base salary of just £12.8m per year represents a significant decrease from the £22m offer that Madrid made 18 months ago. However, Mbappe has managed to retain a portion of his image rights—a privilege enjoyed by only a few players at Real Madrid.
